by additional security? we're hearing there were concerns by some of those who were a part of ambassador stevens' immediate group talking about issues that they had. there's also been just moments ago, some discussion about whether some of the information being presented is classified or not. so there are lots of political overtones to this. very complicated because there are lives that were lost here. there was service to the country from these fine americans who were there and who were killed and so everyone is trying to trade a bit lightly on that. but there is a lot of politics mixed into this along with the committee's responsibility in oversight to look for answers. there was frustration among some republicans that the state department put out a detailed timeline but not included members of the committee. frustration among democrats who say that one of the members jason chav fitz went to libya but no democrats involved on that trip. there are complex ish shis and don't expect to have all of the issues. they want to shine a light on things, worries among those closest to ambassador stevens

wanted to stay past august and ambassador stevens wanted his team to stay, as well. in the memo, obtained exclusively by abc news, the embassy in libya did not mince words, requesting that the state department keep the 16-member security support team in the country. quite simply, we cannot maintain our existing levels of embassy operations without a continued security support team presence, the memo says. that request, made in february, was granted. after that, security in libya deteriorated further with western target attacks. now the commander of the security team tells me his team wanted to stay past august and that ambassador stevens wanted them there as well. but for some reason, the state department, he says, did not let it happen. wood will testify in front of the oversight committee wednesday. >> we need to operate in a country like libya with -- erring on the side of security. >> reporter: a senior state department official tells abc news that no official request for an extension after august was ever made and there were just as many u.s. shooters present as before. the official
